Did you ever tune it up?
in the last 60k miles do all steps in the op guide for 60k miles.
if not, bingo. I have same car, what engine. I4 or V6.
i have full access to docs and the knowledge.
the short list of 50 reasons (i do the tests to find which fast)
1: not tuned up, ever. (classic)
2: EGR sticks open, clean it or replace it, its 50k service point. all cars.
3:ISC stuck closed (in fact all air valves, sticking for idle controls)
4: misfiring for huge list of reason... (have list but is useless. we do that tests)
5:flooding, (more tests)
6: weak or bad spark to 1 or more cylinders. more tests.

do you wish to guess, or tests.
if i were to guess, id say, no tuneup done with spark and air and fuel filters.

Sport Wrangler 6 cyl. Engine lite flashing. Diagnostic tool lists code PO305. I looked it up and it states misfire in cyl #3 & 5. How do I fix this?

Check the plugs, wires and coil pack for these two cylinders. Most lilkely it is the coil pack, they work for 2 cyclinders at a time. cylinder motors use 3 and 8 cyl moters use 4 of these. If your und=sure where the coil pack is, follow it backwards from the spark plugs.

Have a 95 chevy lumina, the oil light came on and the engine died. Added oil, now car will not start.

How long was the oil light on before the engine died? Did you hear any noises coming from the engine before it died? If the oil light was on for a while and you were still driving on it, the engine could have seized up which would explain why it won't start back up. Do you know why the oil light came on? Do you have an oil leak that you're aware of or have you seen blue smoke coming out of your tailpipe while driving? There are a lot of different scenarios that could have happened with this.

Run out of fuel now engine wont start on a ford focus

make sure your fuel pump fuse is ok, if it is ok, then may be your fuel filter get blocked with some dirt forn the tank so you can replace it, is easy it is located under the car passenger side rear tire look for it and replace it it should cost arroun 20 dollars, if after replace it you have the same problem then most lilkely your fuel pump get fryed, they burn out realy easy when you run out of gas, so try thath firs and let us know how it works.

Starts with boost then car dies after 1 km and won't start

once the car is started it runs off the alternator .. so even if your battery is bad the alternator will still run the car .. so it looks lilke your alternator is bad .. when you jumped the car you charged the battery a little but not enough to keep it going since the alternator is not charging . if you hook up a charger overnight then you might be able to run it long enough to get somewhere (garage) .. try to drive when you dont need lights .. those will run down the battery in a short time .. if you have a volt meter then the battery should read about 13.8 to 14.2 volts when the alternator is working properly (car running) .. if it reads lower (like 12volts or less) then the alternator is not charging .. some auto parts stores will test your system free ..

2000 s10 Blazer dies very 3-6 weeks for no reason

i would check your ignition system. you would need a meter for this but look for broke or loose connections. if it was a fuel problem i dont think it would just start up after 20 minutes. or you might try your ignition switch. if its shorting or something then ya well it would cut your engine off real quick
